Lyrics

Buck & Daisy

Written By: John Palermo

Verse 1
Buck and Daisy said they’d had enough
So they moved to the city just to try their luck
And they played their songs on the streets for free
But the city was rough and the streets were mean
But they swore to each other that they’d never go home
Never go back to the life they’d known

But that was very long ago

Chorus:
Summertime, in the street, takin’ in the big city
Throwing roses in the pouring rain, jumping
Over puddles with a grand jeté, and
Not a worry to get in their way, but
What no one understood,
Buck & Daisy could

Verse 2
The years wore on and their love grew strong
And they played in the band, all night long
But the man in the shadows standing all alone
Gave something to Buck and he was gone
And Daisy broke down every night until
They took him away and the earth stood still

But that was very long ago

Bridge
Good night my love - sweet dreams until the morning sun
Goodbye my love - so long for evermore

Chorus

Guitar Solo

End

China

Written By: John Palermo & Ed Palermo

CHINA

Knowing what I have to do
Not showing never shining through
I wait for you

Pictures pounding in my brain
Decisions drowing in the rain

CHORUS
China, others cannot refuse
They will come to you
China, let us be lovers too
I will wait for you

Silence lying next to me
The violence in your heart
I see you wait for me

China, let me conquer you
Don’t fight it, it’s the only truth

CHORUS
China, others cannot refuse
They will come to you
China, let us be lovers too
I will wait for you
China, others cannot refuse
They will come to you

INTERLUDE

MUTED TRUMPET SOLO

CHORUS
China, others cannot refuse
They will come to you
China, let us be lovers too
I will wait for you
China, others cannot refuse
They will come to you
